Paul Reiser has joined the cast of Life After Beth, an indie horror comedy being made by Jeff Baena, writer of David O. Russell’s 2004 film I Heart Huckabees.

Beth, which Baena also wrote, stars Dane DeHaan as a young man who struggles to continue his relationship with his girlfriend Beth, being played by Aubrey Plaza, after she resurrects from the dead.

Reiser will be playing DeHaan’s father. (John C. Reilly is already on board as Plaza’s dad.)

Reiser was most recently seen as the attorney for Scott Thorson (played by Matt Damon) in Behind the Candelabra, Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace movie.

Reiser is repped by Gersh, New Wave Entertainment and Del Shaw.
